The Our Town Exhibition Opens

13th September 2013
Friday 13th has arrived. If you're superstitious then maybe you weren't looking forward to today, but for those of us involved in the Our town exhibition it was a date for the diary.

The exhibition officially opened today in a vacant shop unit in the Mander Centre between New Look and the Works. The volunteers were in attendance together with staff from the Central Youth Theatre. Those people who had provided their memories, and those involved behind the scenes, had been specially invited. Tea, coffee and fruit juice and a plentiful buffet were provided. Numerous passers-by who were curious came in – this wasn't an exclusive preview!

The banners look great, and the window is full of memorabilia. There are large prints of some images from the banners. A message board allows any visitors to add their own memories to those already collected and share with others.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 14th to Saturday 21st September 2013 (closed Sunday 15th and Wednesday 18th). Staff and volunteers will be there to talk to. Free tea and biscuits are available for anyone who visits, so there is no excuse not to pop along.
